    Because cell has many organelles.. Like a school has many students..lol Cell is the school and it's organelles are it's students.. Each organelle has different or specific function,like we have in school for example each class has class representators and they have specific function.. and more and more..:)

    cells these days have been compared to companies where the nucleus is the CEO, the mitochondria is the plantation or plant house, the DNA being the blue print, etc; I guess you make the same distinction when comparing to school - nucleus being the Principal's office or the Dean's, then you can use your imagination with the rest. I hope this helped.

    Analogy:As substances like water and other nutrients enter a plant cell to keep it stable ,students enter a school to learn.

    The examples provided from the simplest idea should act more like that "aha" spark to keep things going. I would really hope that one's own imagination be sufficient enough to complete this task of analogy.
